Little bit of Sass

I can't wait until these shoes fit her!!!!

Tutu Shirts

I promised a while back some pictures as well as tutorials.  So, here's to partial promise keeping :)
These are 2 tutu shirts.  I forget which blog I saw them on and adapted the idea (if you know, let me know please) from, but I will keep hunting.  They are super simple and just too much fun.  These shirts I got on clearance at Target. I really wanted some in a similar style for Penelope, but they were all sold out in her size.  These are 4/5.  To make them, lay the shirt flat and measure across the bottom of the front of the shirt.  Double this number to have the distance all the way around the shirt.  Next, measure the tulle 2.5 times more than the total of the shirt.  So, if the shirt front is 15 inches, then all the way around is 30.  Your tulle length should be 75 inches.  These are made with 2-3 layers of tulle.  Sew your layers of tulle together, but do not back stitch.  Pull the bobbin thread to gather and make the ruffle/tutu.  Sew the tulle to the bottom of the shirt, right sides together.  Flip the tutu down and you've got a dressed up sassy shirt.  Pair with leggings or jeans~~super cute and fun!

Not your everyday floral wreath

What a great way to use the yoyos I make.  Katie at Paisley and Polka Dots wrapped a foam ring and covered it with her flower yoyos.  I can do that!  Such a simple and fun project, not to mention one that will brighten up a room and make it feel more like March and springtime :)  Create yoyos for any season or color scheme.  Follow her tutorial for your wreath making.

Crepe Paper Rose Balls

Guess what will be in my check out basket soon...crepe paper!  :)  I found these super cute decorative balls and know that they will be a perfect addition to Penelope's room.  House of Smiths has the perfect tutorial to help you create these too.  Go check it out and glam up a little corner.


My little brother is married now...and I couldn't ask for a better wife for him :)  As much as everyone loves to watch when the bride enters the church, I couldn't take my eyes off of my brother.  He had a huge smile and was definitely holding back the tears.  I've got so many great pictures and memories from this past weekend.  Congratulations again to Ryan and Emily :)

Ryan, as Emily walked up the aisle.
